From Illinois Statehouse News via The Hare-Dispatch:
“Gov. Pat Quinn on Monday signed a new law requiring communities with similar demographics such as language or race be kept together when the lines of Illinois’ political map are redrawn this spring.”
So Quinn and the Democrats have legalized and institutionalized ethnic ghettos.
What about the liberal Sacred Pillar of diversity? It’s not enough to draw the map for political preferences, now race and “language” must be considered.
Rather than do what proponents claim. which is increase minorities “ability to significently influence elections”, we will see the same thing that has happened in Chicago’s black electoral ghettos—no competition and Representatives For Life.
This law is good for politicians and bad for the people.
It’s identity politics on steroids.
